    Oh my, a whole four of them! Stunning work by media matters, who has had their 'articles' used, word for word, by the likes of MSNBC talking heads.

    It is difficult to argue when the goal posts are on a trailer being pulled by a pickup.

    first it was show me where Media Matters has criticised other media outlets - I did that

    then it was "only two in the years since Media Matters was founded" - I had provided four from just the past couple of months

    not good enough - fine, play with yourself.

    You are the one that lives in denial of their mission statement.

    So you're unaware of Alan Colmes, Juan Williams, Bob Bickle, etc.

    Then there's the boss at FoxNews, Roger Ailes former media consultant for Republican presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush.
    So what? In a largely two party country are you surprised that someone may have once worked for one of the political parties? Are you that concerned that someone may have once worked for the democrats? Why the outrage?
    Add in the various talking heads who are also on the Fox payroll, from Sarah Palin to Karl Rove to Mike Huckabee. Not a liberal in the bunch and most are hard core righties.
    In fact there are several liberals and i named a few. Why should there be nothing but liberal dorks in the media? And what the hell is a "hard core righty"?
    MSNBC provides 'balance' for the propaganda that comes out of Fox and is certainly more fair.
    So you believe this to be "fair"?

    Schultz to Dem Senators Who Voted Against Obama: "It's Gonad-Cuttin' Time"

    MSNBC's Schultz Slams 'Damn Political Phony' Marco Rubio as 'Not a True American'

    Schultz Admits Editing Perry, Doesn't Apologize for Falsely Accusing Him of Making Racist Remark About Obama

    Ed Schultz's MSNBC Apology to Ingraham Preceded by Churlish Non-Apology on Radio Show

    Ed Schultz: 'The Republican Party Stands For Racism'

    Ed Schultz Denigrates Elderly as 'the Almost Dead'

    Race Card: Schultz Claims Republicans Have 'Pre-Civil Rights Attitude' On ObamaCare

    Ed Schultz: Republicans are 'Bastards Who Want to Destroy the American Dream'

    Ed Schultz Meltdown: Harry Reid 'Ball-less' - Won't Shove GOP Bastards Into Ditch

    The longest daily show on MSNBC, three hours, belongs to a former Republican congressman, Joe Scarborough. The day that Ailes gives three hours, five days a week to a former Democratic congress critter of liberal persuasion, we can start talking about 'balance' at Roger's place.
    As explained above there are several liberals being paid for their contributions to Fox. You come up with Joe Scarborough??
    Alan Colmes - the man who used to share a desk with Hannity but got booted because Sean couldn't deal with even a little bit of contradiction. Alan Colmes, who now appears for only a few minutes each week and quite often gets shouted down by other panelists. yeah, they really have some libruls on Fox
    Like Juan Williams who got booted from PBS? And Colmes still works for Fox on the radio, and still has his weekly appearances. It was he who quit, as he explained at the time, and did not get fired. Like any Liberal, you're are making it up as you go along.
    MSNBC, propaganda wing of the Democratic Party, not quite. Listen to the evening shows and you will hear a lot of criticism of the President and the Dems in Congress along with praise when they do some things right.
    Yeah, sure!

    Re: Rupert Murdoch's Fox broadcast licences targeted by US ethics group

    Always nice to see stuff from site like NewsBusters regurgitated. Aren't we supposed to show it when we quote other people's work, failing to do so is plagiarism?

    Read more: An Open Letter to MSNBC President Phil Griffin: Take Responsibility for Hateful Ed Schultz | NewsBusters.org

    In another thread, I was asked if, as a liberal, I could admit that African Americans could be racists. I agreed they could - case in point, Juan Williams

    Bob Bickle - There ain't no such person, there is former Dem strategist, Bob Beckle, of who it has been written, "has absolutely no filter to speak of" and yet at the same time you want to protest Ed Schultz's loose lips.

    Alan Colmes describes himself as quite "moderate" - not liberal

    Finally, for work calls, I wrote
    MSNBC, propaganda wing of the Democratic Party, not quite. Listen to the evening shows and you will hear a lot of criticism of the President and the Dems in Congress along with praise when they do some things right.
    to which, the reply was
    Yeah, sure!
    as the final line in a posting which included
    Schultz to Dem Senators Who Voted Against Obama: "It's Gonad-Cuttin' Time"

    Ed Schultz Meltdown: Harry Reid 'Ball-less' - Won't Shove GOP Bastards Into Ditch
    which would apparently indicate the poster simply found some anti-MSNBC message, quoted from it without credit to the source, but never bothered to actually read the words.

    So because you don't have a credible counterpoint you want to call me a plagiarist?? Those ad hominem attacks are so laughably predictable of leftists!

    In another thread, I was asked if, as a liberal, I could admit that African Americans could be racists. I agreed they could - case in point, Juan Williams
    Juan Williams is a racist??? Please explain!

    Bob Bickle - There ain't no such person, there is former Dem strategist, Bob Beckle, of who it has been written, "has absolutely no filter to speak of" and yet at the same time you want to protest Ed Schultz's loose lips.
    What point are you trying to make here? Bickle and Schultz are both loud and crude democrats.
    Alan Colmes describes himself as quite "moderate" - not liberal
    It doesn't matter how Colmes describes himself. He'll be judged by his opinions. Even the most rabid leftists, and that includes Hitler or Stalin, will think of themselves as "moderates".


    which would apparently indicate the poster simply found some anti-MSNBC message, quoted from it without credit to the source, but never bothered to actually read the words.
    Really? And what words did I miss? Instead of criticism it is called "anti-MSNBC". LOL!

    When you post the words of another person without giving credit - that is plagiarism. Saying you have done such a thing with evidence does not constitute an ad hominem attack. Study a bit more


    Juan Williams is a racist??? Please explain!
    Why was Juan Williams fired by NPR?

    What point are you trying to make here? Bickle and Schultz are both loud and crude democrats.
    Still unable to spell Bob Beckle's name I see. If he is still a Dem, he is what is known as a Blue Dog, a southern Dem who would have fit well into the Republican Party of the 60s

    It doesn't matter how Colmes describes himself. He'll be judged by his opinions. Even the most rabid leftists, and that includes Hitler or Stalin, will think of themselves as "moderates".
    Hitler was not a leftist. He and Stalin would never have called themselves "moderate". They were both proud of the strength of their convictions and in their megalomania. Sort of like Romney calling himself a "severely conservative" governor, huh?

    Really? And what words did I miss? Instead of criticism it is called "anti-MSNBC". LOL!
    Read my earlier reply to your claim that MSNBC was as much an arm of the Democratic Party as FoxNews is of the Republicans and how it "never" criticises the Dems. If you bother to read the part where I quoted from your original post, there are two links to attacks by Ed Schultz on Dems.

    Do you understand what ad hominem means? For that matter do you understand what deflection means?

    Why was Juan Williams fired by NPR?
    You called Juan Williams a racist. Why should I ask NPR? You made the claim, you provide the evidence.

    Still unable to spell Bob Beckle's name I see. If he is still a Dem, he is what is known as a Blue Dog, a southern Dem who would have fit well into the Republican Party of the 60s
    He is still a Democrat. Perhaps he's not as leftist as you would like but he is still a Democrat.

    Hitler was not a leftist. He and Stalin would never have called themselves "moderate". They were both proud of the strength of their convictions and in their megalomania. Sort of like Romney calling himself a "severely conservative" governor, huh?
    Right. These Socialists were proud of their ideological convictions and felt they made sense.


    Read my earlier reply to your claim that MSNBC was as much an arm of the Democratic Party as FoxNews is of the Republicans and how it "never" criticises the Dems. If you bother to read the part where I quoted from your original post, there are two links to attacks by Ed Schultz on Dems.
    No, I'll not bother going over the thread to read your previous posts. They don't sufficiently interest me.
